On the cover of Baby Teeth, SuziWithAnUzi appears as the victim of a violent crime. Blood splays across the all-white background, while her eyes roll back, half-opened. The image belies the sweet sentiments and mysticism within the album, revealing another welcome layer behind the horrorcore imagery and heavy beats. Far from simple emo, Baby Teeth sees Suzi calls upon the stars (“I’m a Cancer, Babe”) in sorting out the tea leaves of love and relationships. When the album dips into pop-punk (“Rental”) and R&B (“DND”), she reveals a significant range and a soft centre behind the bared fangs.
